Venus, the principle of receptivity, is now in the fire sign Aries.
Venus in Aries wants to receive spontaneity, creativity and freedom. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represents new energy ready to burst out of its protective container. Like a germinating seed, this new life pushes upward toward the nourishment of the Sun. Those born with Venus in Aries often manifest as someone who embraces life fully and with great enthusiasm.
In the desire to be free of constraint, those with Aries in their chart can be combative. The shadow side of Venus in Aries is an attraction to disruptive behavior. These individuals can manifest relationships that have the characteristics of a battle, with alternating fight/flight responses from the Venus in Aries native.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Venus is Isis, Queen Mother of Heaven. Aries is Kephera, the Spiral Dancer. Kephera reminds us that every day brings a new beginning and an opportunity for change. We will have many opportunities for change in 2020 - of ourselves, our lives, our world. The question for this transit is, “What new experiences do we want to receive?”
Venus/Isis will remain in Aries/Kephera until March 4.
